  1. Merlin Merlin is the best character from The Sword in the Stone! But so many true icons have fallen, some at my hands, and yet Merlin still stands due to the solid work of Derek. I just think that Merlin suffers from being in only one movie. And while the movie is good, it's not much more than good? Merlin is at a point in the game where he is up against some of the biggest names in Disney history. And his résumé just does not compare to the rest. But let's get into the reasons one might like him. You Merlin is the deuteragonist of the film. He is an absentminded, eccentric, odd, grouchy, magical fool that takes on the task of educating young Arthur. Merlin believes in education before war, which makes him far more intelligent than most Disney characters. Merlin also rocks the incredible powers of foresight and shapeshifting, since he is the most powerful wizard in all the land! Also very cool! His teaching methods are a bit unorthodox. He starts by transforming Wart into a fish. We all know how fish have fared in this Rankdown. LOL. I mean, he then turns himself into a fish and cannot remember the spell to transform them both back into human form before being eaten by a pike. We love a kooky teacher that cannot remember things! But he also does awesome things like use his magic to clean the kitchen for Wart in order to sneak him out for a lesson. He even does things like explain the concept of love to the young Arthur, after a run-in with two squirrels. And I think we all can agree that we hate Sir Ector for saying mean things to Merlin! Though Archimedes takes over his teachings for a while, Merlin accidentally stumbles upon the greatest lesson of all: teaching Wart to fly. So he turns him into a bird, naturally. Except Mim captures Wart. But not to fear! Merlin absolutely slays the dragon that is Mim, literally, by transforming into a germ! GENIUS! Merlin really is the heart of that film and is the one that provides all the funny moment! Which is why he becomes the only character to appear in other Disney media. But most of them are small appearances. Except for Once Upon a Time and Kingdom Hearts. He is pretty big as a character in both of those. Charming and funny, Merlin is a character that is pretty easy to love. But he is also up against heavy-hitters, which makes it hard to justify keeping him around any longer. Good job on pushing him so far along in the rankdown!

  4. Timon Who am I and what have I done with the real Victoria? The world may never know. You guys know I hate doing write-ups and the only exception is when it comes to Disney. I wanted to do some of you all favors by saving Jessie, Mr. Incredible, Ralph and Esmeralda. The fact that Pumbaa has already left makes this decision a little easier. I do love Timon but I love the others too. The others seems like main characters in their movies and Timon (and Pumbaa) seem more like sidekicks. AMAZING SIDEKICKS but sidekicks nonetheless. Timon is technically a major character in one of the most beloved if not the most beloved Disney film of all-time, The Lion King. He was introduced in 1994. He is a wisecracking meerkat and is the best friend of everyone's favorite warthog, Pumbaa. Timon lives the easy life of sleeping and grub! A philosophy known as Hakuna Matata. There is is even a song about it. You might have heard it. Timon (and Pumbaa) come across Simba as a young cub when he runs away after Scar tricks him into thinking he aided in the death of Mufasa. At first, Timon is scared of the young cub but Pumbaa has the idea that if they raise him he would be on their side. Timon takes the idea as his own. He does this a lot to Pumbaa. They raise Simon and they all three become the best of friends as they sing "Hakuna Matata" and we see Simba grow up during the song. They live with Timon and Pumbaa peacefully until Nala tries to eat Pumbaa and Timon. Good thing Nala is Simba's childhood best friend. Timon and Pumbaa find out that Simba is the king of the Pride Lands and sees them losing their friend as they sing "Can You Feel The Love Tonight". Timon and Pumbaa have some pretty iconic moments in both songs. I know I mentioning Pumbaa along with Timon but you kind of have to. When Simba decided to fight his Uncle Scar for the Pride Lands, Timon and Pumbaa join Simba and Nala with the fight. At Pride Rock, Timon and Pumbaa dance the hula to distract the hyenas so that Simba and Nala could get by and Simba would have a clear shot at Scar. Timon and Pumbaa then fight off numerous hyenas before he is chased by Shenzi and Banzai into Scar's cave and takes cover in Zazu's cage after Scar confessed to the pride that he killed Mufasa. The moment is pretty funny. It's depicted in the gif above. Timon has so many funny moments in the movie. Timon and Pumbaa are definitely the comedic parts of the movie. At the end Timon (and Pumbaa) are triumphant with helping Simba reclaim his throne and are shown standing on top of Pumbaa with Simba, and Nala as heroes of the Pride Lands. Timon is an iconic character and is perfectly voice by Nathan Lane in the original. Timon (along with Pumbaa) make more appearances in the following: The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, The Lion King 1½, The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar and the television series, Timon & Pumbaa. The most notable movies/tv shows I mentioned is The Lion King 1½ where he is the protagonist the film. The movie tells Timon's backstory and bleeds into the original film as well. It would watch it if you have the free time. If not just for Raven-Symone's "Grassing in the Grass". Timon was lastly portrayed in the live-action version of The Lion King released in 2019. In my opinion, Timon and Pumbaa were the stars of that film because it was so life less otherwise. Timon is an icon and this is a sad cut to make. I hope I did him justice!
